Many events—good, bad, and “unrated”—occurred during the unusual year 1968. It was a time of great unrest and of new ways of seeing things. Lorri Ungaretti will point out some of the many ways this year was unique in San Francisco, the United States, and the world. She will talk about the Vietnam War (and responses against it), politics, assassinations, sports, music, and more. This is not a critical interpretation of 1968, but merely a chronicle of the many events of that year.

Lorri Ungaretti is the administrative director of SFHS and editor of Panorama. She has published five books on San Francisco history.
